I’m excited to announce that I’m one of ICOSA gallery + artist collective’s newest members. Be sure to check out These, our precious scars: Erin Cunningham & Alyssa Taylor Wendt, the final show at ICOSA’s Pump Project location, which opens Friday, April 27, 7-10pm.

Also opening on Friday at Pump is PRIMA MATERIA, a group show curated by Erin Cunningham, Alyssa Taylor Wendt, and the ICOSA Collective. Once of my Rooms pieces was selected for the exhibition.

Curated around the idea of alchemy, the ICOSA Collective brings us PRIMA MATERIA, a group show of Austin artists whose work explores a sense of mysticism, teleportation, clairvoyance and the magic of metallurgy. Shown in conversation with Erin Cunningham and Alyssa Taylor Wendt’s show these, our precious scars, the group looks at change as a positive force and one that could yield bigger discoveries and treasures, as with the alchemical practice. As our community is aware, Pump Projects will soon be relocating due to the sale of the current beloved space. This exhibition celebrates ICOSA’s last show in the physical space and affirms the strength of the art community to persevere and gild the seeds of future endeavors.

Participating artists include: Steve Brudniak, Lisette Chavez, Rachelle Diaz, Chris DiRaddo, Aaron Flynn , Mai Gutierrez, Sarah Hirneisen, Andrea Faye Hyland and Emily Cayton, Jieun Beth Kim, TJ Lemanski, Kyle Nutter, Amy Scofield, Prakash Spex, Wes Thompson, Bruce Lee Webb, and Sally Weber.

Exhibition: April 27-May 26
Gallery Hours: Saturdays 12-5pm, or by appointment
